Time not lived
Gemma F

Bored of conventionalisms and of things never changing, my aim in this project is to reproduce old photos, avoiding a formal approach and forgoing clarity, with that perceived feeling of age, blurriness and imperfection, textures imitating the passage of time, where each portrait is unique and unrepeatable, like it used to be, as each moment lived is what it is, not what it was nor will be.

My memory is filled with nostalgia for a "Time not Lived", but instead dreamed, a chimeric vision of a past that only existed in the windmills of my mind. Escaping from a reality that is devouring me from within, trapped in an eternal and fleeting present... So much to live for when life killed off my dreams, if ever I had any, that is, if ever I lived.
